New Customer Holster Build....
« on: March 03, 2020, 06:45:47 PM »
Apologies up front for not being BP related.

I guess being around Tombstone quite a bit has it's benefits. I was visiting with a fine gentleman last week at the shop talking about holsters. He mentioned that he'd been looking for a "working cowboy" type holster for a "new to him" 4.75" Colt SAA. But, everything he found was tooled in some way and he wanted a plain one. So I explained that I could make him one easy enough and we did the deal for the style he wanted. I just finished it for him today. He purchased another holster of mine through the shop....and I explained that "custom orders" were $40 more.....he didn't flinch and paid me up front....it ended up being Bobby Carradine.

He called me a couple times wanting to know of I could get close to the color of an old rig he had back when he did a few cowboy movies. He's mailing me an autographed photo for the color match job. I had no idea who he was until he was ready to leave and wrote down his contact info for me. He's planning on doing some new western stuff soon.....I wish him the best.

.....at least I know now that there is still at least one gun toting, Trump voting conservative alive in Hollywood. That made me feel real good!

That's my old Birds Head in the holster.....

I like plain holsters too.

Carradine used to live up here in Colorado,  in Telluride or Durango I think.    I never met him or sold a holster to any celebrities.   
For those that don't know...  Bobby Caradine played the oldest of the kids in the John Wayne movie  "The Cowboys"

Hi Mick, that's one fine looking holster! I have seen some movies where Tom Selleck's revolvers and rigs were used in Westerns.  Maybe we will soon see your holster in a new Western?

Regards,
Richard

I have not seen that movie in a long while. I believe his nickname in the movie was "Slim".
